Publication details
Nitzschia kützingiana var. fonticola Grunow in Cleve & Grunow 1880

Type species
The type species (holotype) of the genus Nitzschia is Nitzschia elongata Hassal.

Status of name
This name is currently regarded as a synonym of Nitzschia fonticola (Grunow) Grunow

Type information
Type locality: Neuchâtel (Trobajo et al 2006: 1357). Lectotype: BM 26835 (Trobajo et al 2006: 1357). Notes: According to Blanco (2016: 109), Krammer & Lange-Bertalot (1988) designated a lectotype using a specimen from Cleve & Möller's exsicattae ('Lectotypus, Cleve & Möller 174, Neuchâl, Schweiz, p. 366, which is presumed to be part of the original material because it is labelled "N. "palea" var. fonticola' and fits Grunow's description. They consider the subsequent attempt of superseding this lectotype with other material to be unjustified.
